Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Concentrated aromas with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Great acidity with fresh lime and grapefruit balanced by soft minerality on the palate. Bright and crisp with rich fruit expression, and an elegant finish.

Root: 1 Sauvignon Blanc is an extremely food-friendly wine that pairs beautifully with fresh cheeses, seafood, grilled pork, or fresh lime chicken tacos. A lively match with spicy, crunchy Asian dishes, or spinach, almond and mandarin salad.

Critical Acclaim

"A touch neutral on the nose, but overall this is a nice, minerally, grassy SB with lots of green apple and freshness. The palate offers depth and clarity, and the flavors of green fruits are good. Falls off on the finish, which seems flat compared to the rest of the wine. "
88 Points

"Light gold. Citrus fruits and herbs on the nose, complicated by a subtle floral quality and a touch of white pepper. Dry and a bit constricted, offering firm lemon and lime flavors and building herbacity. Finishes clean, enlivened by an exotic curry powder nuance. Uncompromising and sure to work well with a range of lighter foods."
